Areas of Expertise

  • Low-dimensional Topology


I have an M.A. and Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of California, Santa Barbara. I also have a B.A. in mathematics from Scripps College in California. My undergraduate degree from a small liberal arts college informs my teaching style and goals today. 

My research is in low-dimensional topology, and I especially like to explore mathematical knots and their relatives.
